Aidah
Aidah is 44 years old and lives in the town of Namutumba in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has five children with one of them currently in school. For the past four years, Aidah has been working hard to manage her bar and lodge, which offers lodging facilities and beverages.

To help expand her business, Aidah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve the business and buy more beer, spirits and wine to sell, and will help Aidah to generate greater profits and more income. Aidah hopes that in the future she will be able to improve the lodging facilities.

Aidah is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Aidah who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro-loans.
